and miraculously there was zero damage to the garden...zero I say! Then the gutter guys came
and weren't as careful with their ladder placements, but still not much damage. But as old houses tend to do, when you fix something other problems pop up so we had to have the carpenters come and replace some rotting window moldings and while we're at it let's just replace the buckling back porch and basement door. And so we did
and got us a real beauty. And a nice basement door
made out of composite materials to hold off the Northeast weathering effects. But alas, the garden didn't fare very well under the carpenters stomping boots and my new beautiful flower bed went from this
Luckily I can just cut all this back and it will, hopefully, grow back. Unfortunately though I can't use them for Jane's FITH party today. However, that doesn't mean I can't attend...I've got pegees!!!!!!!
Some for the living room
Some for the second floor landing
and even some for the office
And now I have a new roof, new gutters, new porch and basement door...and a tri-colored house. Calling all painters! But first I'm hopping over to Jane's to see what everyone else is up to.
